Finally, a follow-up to NY businessman who beheaded wife

I have been wondering what was going on - the media has been silent. ( Which is a bit odd since they will often pursue such stories weekly to the point that we're sick of hearing about it: they'll have videoclips about was the man arraigned? what do his neighbors say? what does the police investigator say? the prosecutor? ... etc. )

So I was interested to see a headline about it, and surprised by what the article said:

Is this aspect of this man's culture common knowledge ... were you familiar with this? And how does this connect with American women's movements being so silent about this?

  • "Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a 'Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'" Hassan said in a 2004 press release. "But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell."

    Actions speak louder than words.

  • This is just so wrong on so many levels. I don't think it was this man's culture that made him commit this horrific crime, it was because he is a thug inside and he hid it for a long time, and finally acted out.

  • "Aasiya was her husband's third wife, and the couple reportedly met on the Internet."

    Curious as to the fates of the other two women!
